As summer arrives in full force, it’s time to shed some layers and celebrate what’s underneath! Layering in alluring lingerie with your look can be a fun, flirty, and flattering way to make your own personal style statement this season. Whether you’re looking for the perfect alt evening wear, party attire, or daytime-to-nighttime look, this trend is hotter (and more possible to achieve) than ever before. To help get you started with some style inspiration, here’s a quick guide to five celebs’ lingerie looks we love.
1. Kendall Jenner - Underwear as Streetwear
Earlier this summer, Kendall Jenner posted pics of her sexy, street-savvy look to Instagram, featuring a feathery lace bralette and black shorts, topped off with a bright metal choker necklace to complete the look. Hanging poolside or heading to your favorite club (or, let’s be honest, just posting to your own Instagram account), you can copy this look in the Papyrus Wireless Bra from Cosabella, a perfectly shaped wireless bra that’s both comfy and chic, available in either bold black or rosetto. Here are a few tips to nab this celebrity lingerie style:
• Use bold jewelry (bonus points for sparkling gems and metallic shine), to draw the eye upward and add balance to the overall outfit.
• Reimagine the right bra as a pseudo crop top, and select your settings accordingly. Save your fully exposed bra for indoor settings and layer with a cute jacket in public.
• Rock the look with confidence! Nothing is sexier than a lady who knows how stunning she is.
2. Gigi Hadid - Blurring the Lines Between Lingerie and Outerwear
Gigi Hadid has long been a style icon both on and off the runway, and we adore her authentic, statement-making beauty. So, needless to say, when she bends the rules of fashion, we think it’s worth taking note. As US Red Carpet Daily reported earlier this month, Gigi Hadid is now incorporating alluring lingerie designs in design-forward party outfits. Here’s how to get the look:
• Opt for sexy, delicate bra designs, and remember that luxe detailing is key.
• Create contrast with varying fabrics and bold patterns, and layer with a chic blazer or tailor-cut tux jacket to complete the look.
• To achieve a sense of high-end styling, visible accents - such as the eyelash edging found on Gigi’s lingerie - make all the difference in communicating luxury and ensuring that your look comes across as sophisticated rather than cheap. We recommend the Villa Satine Corset Bra from Maison Close, which features Parisian lace and eyelash detailing, just like so many celebrity lingerie looks we love.
3. Eliza Cummings - Off-Runway Trendsetting
Celebrated model and lovable covergirl Eliza Cummings has a talent for blending high fashion and effortless, street-ready styles. In interviews, she’s admitted to being something of an ugly duckling - a great source of inspiration for lovely ladies everywhere to celebrate their uniquely beautiful looks! Recently, she’s been spotted in laidback, sexy attire that transitions seamlessly to party wear, with alluring lingerie as the centerpiece of the ensemble. To capture Eliza’s knack for lingerie in everyday fashion, here are a few simple tips:
• Layer fabrics with a unified overall mood. For instance, pair a slinky camisole with a soft, loose-fitting jacket to communicate sensuality and warmth.
• A luxe look doesn’t have to break the bank. With slender straps and a versatile, flattering cut, this Stunning Satin Chemise from iCollection is a style steal that pairs brilliantly with jackets and heels for a chic evening outfit.
• Don’t forget to accessorize! A thin bracelet or rhinestone choker can escalate your style statement to sheer elegance in no time.
4. Victoria Beckham - Luxe Looks
In addition to her other claims to fame, it’s no secret that Victoria Beckham has become a rising star in chic and on-trend fashion design (and in spot-on celebrity lingerie looks). She recently posed for Elle Hong Kong, and showed off fun, figure-flattering styles from her own clothing line. Of course, if you can’t swing the price tag ($1850 for a cami, anyone?), there are other ways to lock down her sexy, stylish appeal. To get Victoria’s timelessly posh look, here are a few key tips:
• High-waisted briefs are back in a big way, and this classic style is sexier than ever. We recommend the Classic Halter Bralette Set from iCollection. Much like Victoria’s look in Elle, this belted brief highlights a cinched waist and curvaceous hips (and is surprisingly comfortable). A scalloped lace bralette with a classic V shape adds to the va-va-voom factor of this jaw-dropping look.
• To look (and feel) like you’re ready for your own cover shoot, accessorize with fierce spike heels. (Stockings can add an extra vintage-meets-contemporary pin-up touch to this alluring lingerie ensemble.)
• Because the perfect lingerie is all about you, complete the look with a sexy, bedhead hairstyle (down is recommended for those of you with long hair) and dramatic eyeliner.
5. Dita Von Teese - Timeless Bombshell Style Lingerie
No list of celebrity lingerie inspirations would be complete without Dita Von Teese. As a burlesque performer, Dita is famous for flaunting her sensuality, and vintage enthusiasts and aspiring sex kittens would do well to take a page from her playbook. Her retro-inspired, corset-clad, pin-up girl flair has only gotten better over time, and now is the perfect season to capitalize on this classic trend. Here are a few tips for tapping into Dita’s vintage glamor
• When it comes to nailing this look, the hourglass shape is the name of the game. We recommend the Black Floral Lace Corset from iCollection, designed to highlight your assets to perfection. (As a bonus, it’s risque enough to probably earn even Dita Von Teese’s approval.)
• For this alluring lingerie style, find inspiration in the fashion icons of the past (think Rita Hayworth, Mamie Van Doren, Sophia Loren, Ava Gardner, the list goes on...). Tap into the confidence and curvaceousness of your inner goddess to make the look come to life.
• While corsets are certainly the centerpiece of any vintage-inspired boudoir, accessories can also be key. A pair of kitten heels and sheer thigh high stockings can successfully polish off the perfect look. (Don’t forget the red lipstick!)
